This archive includes a csv formatted data set that includes 337 unique estimates of band reporting probabilities from North American waterfowl, as used in the 2020 Journal of Wildlife Management paper "A Meta-Analysis of Band Reporting Probabilities for North American Waterfowl" by Todd W. Arnold, Ray T. Alisauskas, and James S. Sedinger. Also included are two files of R and JAGS code for replicating our analyses.
reward_band_reanalysis.Rmd is an R markdown file used to reanalyze published and unpublished data sets for inclusion in our summary data file (reporting_rate_summary.csv). Summaries of reanalyzed data sets are included as part of the code. reporting_rate_summary.csv is a comma delimited spreadsheet that includes published and unpublished estimates of band reporting probabilities included in our meta-analysis. reward_band_meta-analysis.R is an R script that uses the data from reporting_rate_summary.csv to generate figures and other statistical results from our published paper.
